Mcor Technologies to demo the power of the new Sony Xperia XZ1 3D Scanning App at TCT 2017
Sony’s 3D Creator App will make full colour 3D printing even more accessible
NEC, Birmingham, September 26, 2017 – Mcor, the leader in full-colour 3D printing, will demo the new Sony Xperia XZ1 3D scanning app at TCT 2017 on booth C56. The technology will be on display alongside the Mcor ARKe full colour 3D printer which demonstrates the quality of the output from this new scanning app.
Earlier this month Sony introduced the Xperia XZ1 at IFA, which now includes a new breakthrough feature called 3D Creator. This pre-loaded application has the ability to generate realistic 3D scans of objects and people in under a minute. There are also many playful options to enjoy with 3D Creator, such as creating an avatar for use in the camera AR effects options, setting a live wallpaper, sharing on social media with your friends as a 3D sticker, or sending to a full colour 3D printer to make it into a memorable keepsake.
Ciaran Cleary, Account Director at Sony Mobile Communications Ireland said: “With over 70 years’ heritage of innovation in technology, Sony continues to allow consumers to capture special moments and memories in continually evolving ways.
We are capturing more content on mobile than ever before and the 3D Creator feature, a first for smartphone, allows builders, makers, creatives and consumers an easy way to scan or print captured memories.”
“Sony’s 3D Creator app will certainly open the market for full colour 3D printing by providing an accessible scanner that produces high quality files – essentially a 1000 scans in your pocket,” said Dr. Conor MacCormack, Co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies. “We see this as a driver for full colour 3D printing and our technology in an industrial and consumer setting because now there is a scanner to hand that can match our full colour 3D printing capability.”
The ARKe offers high quality full-colour 3D printing on the desktop that is low cost, reliable and safe. The ARKe serves as a transformative step for desktop 3D printing that will stimulate widespread adoption of 3D printing, among educators, creative professionals and beyond.
